If you want to look young but not plastic, then Ultherapy® may be your answer. The treatment works by toning wrinkled or loose skin using your body’s healing response. It can tighten your jowls and neck or lift a sagging brow. This can lessen the excess eyelid skin, giving your eyes a more refreshed look.
What is It?
Ultherapy® is FDA-approved with numerous treatments having been conducted since its approval. It uses ultrasound energy to tone, lift and tighten the skin, and it works by using focused ultrasound energy on your skin and its supporting layers. The ultrasound energy then stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen, in turn, provides firmness, integrity, and suppleness to your skin that is associated with a youthful appearance. The treatment is, therefore, able to slow down or reverse signs of the aging process.
Where Can It Be Used?
This procedure can be used to slow down or reverse aging on your upper face, such as the under-eyes, crow’s feet and eyebrows, and the lower face, such as the jowls and jawline. It can also be used on the chest and neck.
Can It Be Combined with Other Treatments?
Yes! Our team can treat you with Ultherapy® first to tighten your skin as well as thicken the skin’s layers before you begin another treatment. You may notice improved results after injectable treatments, making you excited about your younger, fresher look.
Can It Replace a Facelift?
Ultherapy® can give you a great alternative if you are worried about the laxity of your skin, but you do not want surgery. With that being said, you should understand that the procedure is an uplift and not a surgical facelift.
Some of the results can be seen immediately. However, the ultimate toning and lifting results will be visible in the months following the treatment. Further changes may even be observed up to six months after the treatment. This is because fresh elastic collagen will replace old collagen. The good news is that the results of Ultherapy® can last for quite a while.
